There were fears the Prince Of Darkness had fallen off the wagon again, after the tabloids reported that he’d been MIA for days following the breakdown of his marriage.
While others speculated that the break-up itself happened specifically because he’d hit the bottle again.
However, the Blizzard Of Ozz has now put those rumours in the ground, telling E! News: “I have been sober for three and a quarter years. I have not touched drugs or alcohol in that time. Any reports that I am not sober are completely inaccurate.”
While Ozzy didn’t weigh in on reports that he really has said Goodbye To Romance after almost 34 years of unholy matrimony with the First Lady of Metal, a spokesperson for the couple has issued a statement to Rolling Stone, reading: “At this time, Ozzy is not in the marital home.”
The papers have been reporting word from “inside sources” claiming that Sharon “went ballistic” and turfed Ozzy out of their $10 million Beverly Hills mansion after discovering that he’d been having a fling with a celebrity hairstylist.
Ozzy was fired from Black Sabbath back in 1979 because of his substance abuse and erratic behaviour, which is when Sharon became his solo career manager, and then his girlfriend.
The pair got hitched on July 4th, 1982 and Ozzy has repeatedly credited Sharon with saving his life and forcing him to clean up his act, including during his brief relapse in 2013.
Let’s hope those crazy kids can work things out.
